Guidelines for Local Districts & Landmarks

The Wilson Historic Preservation Commission has compiled a set of Design Guidelines, based on the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, specifically for those who own landmark structures and properties within Wilson’s locally designed historic districts.  The Design Guidelines familiarize owners with the benefits and responsibilities of having property within Wilson’s locally-designed historic districts.

All local districts are identified by street signs with an additional brown sign indicating the name of the historic district. Wilson has three local districts: Old Wilson, Broad-Kenan and West Nash. Guidelines may be viewed by clicking the following: Historic Preservation Guidelines

For more information, please contact Dana Corson at the City of Wilson at dcorson@wilsonnc.org or call 252-399-2225.
